About the property

House, 2 Bedrooms, 3 Baths, sleeps 6 or Add 1 Bedroom Ohana for 8!

Tucked away in the quiet gated enclave of Moani Heights within the Mauna Kea Resort, your ocean view vacation home, The Swaying Palms at Moani Heights, offers a half acre of tropically landscaped privacy, comfort and serenity. With over 2400 square feet, two master suites, a queen sized sofa sleeper, and three full baths, there is room for up to 6 guests to spread out and relax within the main house. For greater space and privacy the home also offers an attached 1 bedroom ohana with a separate entrance off the front courtyard. It can be rented for an additional fee of $150 per night plus tax. With the ohana, the home can accommodate up to 8 guests.

The front door of the main home opens to a spacious living area furnished in a relaxed tropical décor. The living area opens onto the covered lanai overlooking the pool, hot tub, and expansive lawn equipped with tiki torches and those magical swaying palms.

A study offers a quiet area to relax and read or catch up on some work. The oversized kitchen is well-equipped and features a breakfast bar, upscale appliances, and granite countertops along with a cozy TV alcove that is perfect for a movie night. The dining area table will seat up to 6 with additional seating at the bar or on the lanai. Beyond lies the Hapuna Golf Course and a lovely view of the blue Pacific Ocean. This creates a very spacious and private feel to your villa. Enjoying your morning coffee or an evening cocktail on the lanai may become a highlight of your visit!

The master bedroom suite features a King bed, ceiling fan, flat screen TV, dual sinks, a separate soaking tub, glass enclosed shower, and large closet. The guest bedroom offers a King sized bed and has a private bath with shower. A comfortable queen sized sofa sleeper in the living area offers additional sleeping space for up to two guests, and there is a third full bath off the living area for convenience. A full-sized washer and dryer in the home make your stay effortless and simplify your packing.

The optional ohana has a separate entrance and provides an additional king bedroom with breakfast table and chairs, full luxurious bath, and an ohana kitchen with microwave, coffee maker, and small refrigerator.

The home is equipped with high speed wireless internet and cable TV, along with a computer and printer making it easy to keep in touch with the world if you must.

It is just a short 2 minute drive to the fabulous Hapuna Beach Golf Club, the Hapuna Beach Hotel and Beach, fitness hale and of course, the restaurants where they serve up specialty drinks and lunches or pupus. The Hotel and beach at Mauna Kea is an easy drive of 5 minutes for shopping, dining, entertainment, and services.

Guests at Swaying Palms will have the chance to enjoy discounted golf at the Hapuna and the Mauna Kea Courses as well as access to the hotel beaches and pools, preferred parking areas, the fabulous fitness facilities, and reduced rates for tennis at the oceanfront tennis garden if you would like to sign up for that. The resort association charges guests a fee in addition to what the owner has paid to make the discount available. The fee is based on the number of guests and their ages and is paid directly to the Mauna Kea Resort Association at sign up. Participation in the resort amenities is totally optional.

Experience a luau and enjoy the sunset over the ocean. There are so many opportunities here and there is something for everyone!

Guestbook comments from the manager

We really enjoyed our stay at Swaying Palms. The house was very comfortable and well appointed. The guest privileges at the two resorts were a nice touch and made the activities much more convenient and pleasant.
